The man's illustrious family history is witnessed from the Stone Age via flashback. To preserve his family's name and his own honor, he opens up a hotel for sailors with an amusement pier. It is a great success and this inspires the jealousy of the local residents who try to destroy his new empire. Fortunately, the fellow's sailor

Audience Reviews for Barnacle Bill

A long forgotten but absolutely brilliant comedy starring Alec Guinness (his last Ealing Comedy) as a Sea Captain from a long line of Seamen who suffers from sea-sickness. The story is about how he buys a derelict seaside pier and runs it like a ship with some funny results. It's not just a silly comedy though, it's very clever and with it's portrayal of a sleepy run-down seaside resort, crumbling pier and greedy council, it's also very British. Brilliant stuff!
